Did you know, there is a science to achieving your goals? That’s right, and it starts with changing your psychology. From the time we are born, our psychology is being subconsciously programmed. The problem with this is, our way of thinking dictates our routine. On top of that, our brains are hard-wired to stick to what we already know and not to deviate from our usual habits.
Sometimes we have good habits, and sometimes they are devastating to what we want for our lives, whether it be personal, business-related, or spiritual. If our psychology is not helping move our lives forward, we must change it. That’s why these 5 books are absolute must-reads if you find yourself caught in a cycle of negative habits or you aren’t finding success as fast as you’d like.

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
How did Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires become a success? They used the very same principles illustrated in this book, actually. Napoleon Hill admired these men and studied them for years before sharing his insights in Think and Grow Rich.
Education, Napoleon say, has nothing to do with the method outlined in this book. It’s about mental readiness and being determined to attain what you desire, whether it be having wealth, fame, or success in your business. Thomas Edison, for instance, had just three months of schooling, yet he used this secret of “thinking and growing rich” successfully. Furthermore, it stresses: the power of thought, the starting point of all achievement is desire, how to use visualization, influence your subconscious mind, how you overcome fear, and have persistence.
